Dropped Glue Bottle (capped) in return duct.

I accidently dropped Gorilla Glue bottle (cap on it) in the return duct on Second floor. It is stuck there and sure it's harmful... How can I take it out from there!

How far down is it? Can you see it? Can you access the duct from below?
Post a pic.

You might be able to get a stiff wire bent into a hook under the bottle and slide it back up the duct wall till you can reach it.

If its not restricting the flow a lot I might consider leaving it. Eventually it will solidify in the bottle and become inert.
